Using nginx locally for development

Because of moving the web site to the hosting platform, it became necessary for me to develop locally against the same server setup used on the deployment platform. This meant I needed to use Nginx for my local development of Drupal sites.
So, out goes the default Apache and the wonderfully easy MAMP and in comes a nice homebrew install of nginx.
Special thanks to my friend Brian Gilbert of for all his hard work on making Drupal easier to configure when working with nginx.
